Womens Clothes: How To Dress Your Body!

Shop For Your Body ShapeYour body and your shape! At times it becomes really tough for women to choose the type of clothes they want to wear. For instance, have you ever  gone into a shop with  intentions to buy a dress, but simply find yourself distracted? I do, and I end up buying a pair of jeans, a blouse and socks.  Shortly after this I find myself at home wondering why I do not have a dress. I know, this sounds silly but it happens all the time. If you are planning to buy some clothes for your self, first calmly sit and decide on the following:

1. How many times are you planning to wear the dress?
2. Are you buying something to wear around your office or a cocktail party or a wedding?
3. Will it be one time wear or a classic outfit?
4. Will it go with a half a dozen or a single pair of your sandals or shoes?

By being honest with yourself about these question you will save money, and build a better wardrobe.

The first point that you should always consider while shopping should be  your budget. This can be very hard since stores are designed to make you forget all about your budget and bills. Think about your pocket and then think about how-to look good with money still in it. Stick to it and don’t drift away on anything that does not go with your budget. There are a variety of places from where you can buy clothes. Online stores, shopping malls, fashion boutiques, outlets and discount shops are all great places to go if you know what you are looking for..

While desiring to buy garments, color is incredibly significant. Prefer a color that you have become fond of  or that you know is in style and classic; like natural tones and black. Another color suggestion would be to pick colors for which you previously have accessories to accessorize. Initial impressions are superior suggestions.

Receiving the accurate match in the outfits is a dare in itself. Once more, if it does not suit you correctly probability is you won’t be wearing it much.

Your size is not important, but how the dress fits  is.  You are likely wondering how do you know what style suits you!  Women’s body shapes are broken down into four categories, they are lettered A, T, H and X

The “A” body shape also referred to as pear is when you carry the majority of weight in the hip region
Abody types are defined by:
The hip measurement being the largest, when calculated using a measuring tape. Women with A body types usually have quite narrow waist and bust in comparison. There is usually around a 5% difference between shoulder to hip ratio.

To dress an A body type you will want to stick to darker colors on the bottom in comparison to the top. I would recommend no back pockets on your jeans and tops with collars. All of these suggestions take attention away from the lower half and makes a more proportioned look.

How do I know if I am a “T” body shape?

Women with “T” body shapes look like a” T“; it is quite self-explanatory. A busty physique or broad shoulders with the waist and hips not creating any curves.
You will know if you are a “T” body shape because it is characterized by : The shoulder or bust measurements being the largest. There will usually be a 5% difference between the hips and shoulders, with the shoulders being the widest part.

How do you dress a “T” body shape?
You will want to take attention away from thee shoulders as much as possible. Avoid sleeveless shirts or tank tops. It is good to emphasize a small waist line. Bangles are a good eye-catcher and since they would be parallel to your hips it creates a curve affect. You will want to do the opposite of the A body shape and use light on the bottom combined with dark top and this will divert attention from the shoulders and adding to a curvier silhouette. A good item for a T shape are wrap dresses, ones  that cinch in tighter at the waist and flow out.

How do I know if I am an “H” body shape?
For “H” body types the hip and shoulder measurements are the same or, quite close to it. If you are an “H” body shape you have a straight “up-and-down” build with few curves.
If you have an”H” body shape then you want to  create curves for a nice silhouette. Fitted waist belts are great to create a nice waist line.  Low embellishments on the hip line will can add volume to the hips thus making waist smaller by comparison.
Trouser pants are a classic staple to a wardrobe that can elongate the leg and create a nice curve.

The “X” Body Shape is the quintessential curvy women. She has bust/shoulders and thighs/ butt. Yet, even the curvy body type has some no-no styles for the body type.

How do I know if I am an “X” body shape?
An “X” body shape is characterized by the shoulder and hips having no more than a 5% differential.
X body shapes should keep their hips and shoulders balanced.  Boxy cuts that hide your shape and overly tight or exposing clothes.

Women’s clothing inspirations can be characterized by anything that you would like to accomplish through your clothing, these include:

Exemplifying  “bashfulness” is a modern women’s means of displaying a mysterious femininity with sex appeal. Floral print dresses and playful colors can help this look


It is said very well that a woman usually dresses to grab attention and respect. From evening gowns for parties till official suits for business presentations, attractiveness can be exuded with finely tailored and smooth fitting clothes.
Women, as well as men always desire garments that represent their current position or rank; or the position or rank they desire.  Dress for the person you want to be.

Events & Occasions

A lot of times, women are dressed in detailed garments for definite events and reasons that are extremely momentous in their lives. Wedding attire is an illustration of this specific type of apparel. Other instances could be Prom night, night club events, cocktail parties, etc.

I hope this helps in all of your fashion endeavors. By following these simple, but detailed guidelines you will be able to build a strong wardrobe with great items that can fit well into your work, and social lifestyle. I also ask you to remember that the key to all of this is a healthy lifestyle. It is never too late to make a difference in your life. A healthy diet and working out can help anyone look and feel better. It is up to you to choose the time that you are ready to take charge of your own destiny. I know when I am getting ready to go to a big event or party I like to look my very best and it is only a matter of self preservation.
